Yvonne Glasgow High Road No. 6 is a clever and striking alt-country tune backed up by fabulous guitar work and Shawna's spectacular vocals. You truly get a sense of the artists' punk roots, while feeling a little like you're in a cool country club in the backwoods of Kentucky.

‘High Road No. 6’ is a song about escaping the entrapments and negative forces wanting to take you down. It’s visual and cinematic, plus you can shine up your boots and break out some line-dancing.

TRANSGENDER MUSIC PIONEER and cult solo artist Shawna Virago is called anti-folk and punk, and while she is both of those, she is first and foremost a singer-songwriter, rightfully celebrated for her striking Alt-Country and lyric-based songs.


I was broke and living in a haze
From my station in life
Trouble started when I slept with the mayor
Then the mayor’s wife
Next time I won’t fall for the line
“Trust me I love you for your mind”
